I have a Kenwood Sovereign Series DV-5700 changer. Occasionally, it will pause in mid play for about 2 seconds, then resume. After some research, I found others with the same problem. Apparently it is due to the player moving from one layer to another in a dual-layered disk. Kenwood acknowledged this happens but see it as normal for models of this age (2001). This problem was a nasty revelation to me,as nobody I have spoken with, inlcuding the dealer, in the last three weeks has heard of it. I am not willing to tolerate it in my player. I hear that new (2003) models should have some buffering to prevent this from happening. Any thoughts??
